A slick review of the oils and vinegars in our range

A slick review of our range

With so many oils and vinegars within our ambient range, we talk you through their differences and benefits.

White & Black Truffle Oil:

  • Modern culinary ingredient used to enhance the flavour and aroma.
  • More of a finishing oil than cooking oil as high temperatures alter the flavour.
  • White truffle oil is more garlicky and peppery in flavour, suiting more delicate meats and fish.
  • Black truffle oil is more robust, can be paired with stronger foods and drizzled over meat dishes.

Extra Virgin Olive Oil:

  • Liquid fat obtained from pressing whole olives.
  • Extra virgin olive oil is a better alternative when shallow frying due to it smoking at a lower temperature; best used either uncooked or cooked at a low to medium temperature.

Pomace Oil:

  • Olive pomace is extracted from olive pulp after the first press.
  • High smoke point makes it popular preference when cooking.
  • Doesn’t have as much of a flavour as other oils which can be good if you do not want the oil for taste.

Balsamic Vinegar:

  • Very dark, concentrated and intensely flavoured vinegar made from grape must.
  • Although made from grapes, it is not considered a wine because it is not fermented. It is best used after cooking and in mild dishes, so that other flavours can still shine.
